Anne, Sunday the 15th afternoon would work out fine for me- After that I think it's too close to Christmas-New Years holiday  period.

Hi to all!

I really enjoyed seeing the new and established members who came to last night's meeting, where a good time was had by all.

As you know, there is a meeting set for November 17.  My past experience with meetings between Thanksgiving and Christmas has been that nobody seems to go to them, so I have been thinking I would set the next meeting for mid-January. HOWEVER, it has crossed my mind that there is a lot of short fiction and non-fiction about year-end/New year holiday traditions, including but not limited to Christmas (up to and including the Feast of the Epiphany, Day 12), New Years, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Chinese New Year, Saturnalia, Solstice, etc etc. Joke holidays like Christmakkah and Festivus are on the table too, as long as they are in season.

If anyone is interested to a Sunday afternoon meeting, probably to be on December 15, to share and discuss such works (I won't suggest anything over 100 pages and will make sure some suggested readings will be substantially shorter), please email me.  I'll set a meeting if more than 6 members commit to the concept and date. Suggestions for readings are also welcome.
